Lisa Rice on how democracy and election reform can lead to meaningful criminal justice and police reform.
Unite America Board Member, Lisa Rice authored an op-ed featured in Real Clear Politics and The Chicago Tribune.
The message is clear -- Black Lives Matter.
In order to create meaningful change, we can begin by addressing our political systems.
“The movement’s road map for fixing our broken political system and empowering all voters includes:
These reforms undercut the duopoly’s toxic grip on American politics and put our country’s interests ahead of the parties’. These reforms also would level the playing field for women and minority candidates, giving us not just the empathy of our white friends but also the powers and privileges they’ve long enjoyed. Then, maybe, we can strike a powerful blow against systemic racism with a more functional government, potentially capable of tackling issues like police and criminal justice reform.”
